There is a popular restaurant built in 1982 called Oasis. It sits high above Lake Austin and is an institution as they say and calls itself the “Sunset Capital of Texas”. There are four terraces and in the summer it is packed with happy, sun loving people. I, however, went on a cold, chilly January day and had to sit inside. The menu is exactly the same as the last time I ate there years ago. I’ll have to visit in the Summer. The entrance.. This was outside. I’m sure it’s busy in th...

Where to travel in September for the best outdoor adventures

September is a month of denial. Many are loath to admit that summer is over and still cling desperately to those final sunny days. Others are more eager for fall, prematurely donning flannel shirts, scoping out apple orchards, and pre-ordering pumpkin spice lattes the second the calendar turns to September 1. Seasonal biases aside, September is actually the best of both worlds, and one of the best months of the year for a vacation. With the most intense summer heat behind us and the chilly au...

Best luxury cabin rentals in the US

Howling winds and jagged rocks poking at your back don’t exactly make for a good night’s sleep. Add the omnipresent possibility of a bear encounter, and you’re off the hook if tucking into a thin layer of canvas for the night just isn’t your thing. You’re not off the hook for bashing on nature, however, so, fortunately, it’s totally doable to seclude yourself away from the civilized world without sacrificing the bed-laden comforts and four walls you’re used to. These cabin escapes spare you ...

Our molly mutt Car Seat Cover Heads to the Lake!

This week we’re wrapping up a giveaway for a molly mutt travel set–including a molly mutt seat cover and Fillmore Pouch. We wanted to give the products a try with Irie and Tiki as well, so we set off for the Jones Brothers Park in Jonestown, on the shores of Lake Travis, to see how well the seat cover performed in our vehicle!

We know that you know molly mutt for their stylish pet beds and duvets–but did you know you can get many of those colorful designs in a poop bag dispenser as well? The Fillmore Pouch, created using some of molly mutt’s most popular designs, snaps right on your dog leash (or on your belt or dog walking bag) to hold waste bags at the ready. (And a hidden bonus is that you won’t be advertising the fact that you’re toting poop bags…the zipper ensures that you’re not trailing poop bags!) This petit...

Outdoors adventures in Texas

1. Hiking at Big Bend National Park. Photo: Michael Hirsch Big Bend National Park, one of the few N.P.’s in Texas, is hundreds of miles away from major cities, in the southern part of the state along the Rio Grande River. You could easily spend a season or a year or more hiking, exploring and camping here. If you’re not looking for a long hike, the Boquillas Hot Springs are accessible less than a mile from the Hot Springs Road trailhead. Meanwhile, one of the best places in Texas for a sunse...

How to piss off a Texan

Photo: Eric Ward Call yourself a cowboy. Unless you spend your days rising before dawn to herd cattle or care for other livestock, you haven’t earned this coveted title. Most of us aren’t worthy of the title either. Expect us to be on horseback, wearing snakeskin boots, Wranglers and ridiculous 10-gallon hats. Texas has not one, not two, but six cities with more than 600,000 residents. Sure, some of us showed Brahman cattle in 4-H, ride trails on the weekends, or own ranches, but more of us...

Austin Rocks: Sunset at The Oasis on Lake Travis

(Part of the Austin Rocks series of posts by a local about things to do and see in Austin, Texas) Some things haven’t changed over the years in Austin. You take the same road – Comanche Trail – to both The Oasis on Lake Travis restaurant complex and the Hippie Hollow nude swimming area. Follow the correct signs and you’ll be fine. There’s a pretty spectacular view of Lake Travis from this long-time Austin bar and eatery, and it is even better now that we’re out of drought conditions and the lake...
